Glastonbury Ends On A High

by | 25 June 2007

Rock legends The Who closed out this year's Glastonbury festival which has seen about 180,000 people brave regular downpours and muddy conditions to witness the world's largest greenfield music and arts festival.

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis said the weekend had "gone very well, in spite of the rain and mud".

"Believe it or not the drains have actually worked ... the show compensates for the weather ... the sun's not everything," he added.

Mr Eavis added that the headline acts for next year's festival had already been decided. He refused to name the acts but dismissed speculation that Muse or U2 would be starring at the next festival.

While the rain and the mud of Glastonbury may have dampened a few festival-goers spirits, this year's festival has seen relatively few incidents of crime.

The Avon and Somerset constabulary said crime was down compared with 2005's festival. They said 236 crimes had been reported, compared with 267 in 2005.

Sgt Hardy Husain said: "It proves that Glastonbury is a safer event."

Shirley Bassey, The Kaiser Chiefs and the Manic Street Preachers also performed on the festival's third and final day.
